Young Adults at General Assembly

Young Adults at General Assembly (YA@GA) represent a range of experiences and identities. We are college students; we are young professionals. We are lifelong Unitarian Universalists (UUs); we are newcomers to the faith. We are single; we are partnered; we have children. We are thoroughly involved in this religious movement; we may want to be; we may not know how to be.  All of us are committed to Unitarian Universalism and to its growth and vitality in the world.

In previous years young adults formed a caucus at GA, but in 2014 we shifted toward “Young Adults at General Assembly” or YA@GA.  To learn more about this transition and the opportunities for young adults to participate at GA, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
